Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Climate change

Weijian Zhou mostly deals with Climatology, Monsoon, Holocene, East Asian Monsoon and Glacial period. The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Younger Dryas, Climate change, Precipitation, Deglaciation and China. His Monsoon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pleistocene and Loess.

His studies deal with areas such as Peat, Radiocarbon dating, Quaternary and Physical geography as well as Holocene. His East Asian Monsoon research incorporates themes from Plateau, Northern Hemisphere and Cave. His Glacial period research integrates issues from Atmospheric circulation and Oceanography.

His most cited work include:

  • Persistent sulfate formation from London Fog to Chinese haze (579 citations)
  • Persistent sulfate formation from London Fog to Chinese haze (579 citations)
  • Interplay between the Westerlies and Asian monsoon recorded in Lake Qinghai sediments since 32 ka. (416 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Weijian Zhou spends much of his time researching Physical geography, Climatology, Holocene, Radiocarbon dating and Monsoon. His Physical geography research includes themes of Glacial period, Marine isotope stage, Climate change, China and Plateau. His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Younger Dryas, Deglaciation and Pollen.

His study in Holocene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Peat, Quaternary and Paleoclimatology. Weijian Zhou has included themes like Fossil fuel, Paleosol, Loess and Chronology in his Radiocarbon dating study. His Monsoon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Speleothem, Pleistocene, Precipitation, Northern Hemisphere and Forcing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical geography (38.75%)
  • Climatology (33.33%)
  • Holocene (29.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Physical geography (38.75%)
  • Climate change (22.92%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (10.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Physical geography, Climate change, Atmospheric sciences, Climatology and Monsoon. His work deals with themes such as Radiocarbon dating, Paleoclimatology, Marine isotope stage, Interglacial and Holocene, which intersect with Physical geography. His research integrates issues of Glacial period, Loess plateau, Tridacna and Plateau, Qinghai tibet plateau in his study of Climate change.

Weijian Zhou has researched Atmospheric sciences in several fields, including Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere and Relative humidity. Weijian Zhou works on Climatology which deals in particular with Atmospheric circulation. His study in Monsoon focuses on East Asian Monsoon in particular.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Severe haze in northern China: A synergy of anthropogenic emissions and atmospheric processes. (211 citations)
  • Severe haze in northern China: A synergy of anthropogenic emissions and atmospheric processes. (211 citations)
  • Diverse manifestations of the mid-Pleistocene climate transition. (44 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Climate change

Weijian Zhou mainly investigates Climate change, Physical geography, Air quality index, Atmospheric sciences and Pleistocene. His work carried out in the field of Climate change brings together such families of science as Atmospheric chemistry, Haze, Haze pollution and Fine particulate. His research in Physical geography intersects with topics in Loess plateau, Global temperature, Plateau and Vegetation cover.

The Air quality index study combines topics in areas such as Particulates, Water vapor and Relative humidity. His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Tropical cyclone, Extreme weather, Giant clam, Biogeochemical cycle and Moisture. Weijian Zhou combines subjects such as East Asia, Younger Dryas, Allerød oscillation, Holocene and Teleconnection with his study of Pleistocene.
